1940 - Possibly the best year for Fibber & Molly
1940 is quite possibly the best year for Fibber McGee & Molly. Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve, Abigail Uppington, The Old Timer, Horatio K. Boomer - I think these were the best neighbors who visited the McGees every week. This is Gildersleeve before being spun off to his own show and Uppy was one of the all-time great neighbors in any situation comedy (the wealthy widow with an interesting past of working in a laundry and as a circus bareback rider). I think the only great neighbor that hadn't shown up at this time was Wallace Wimple, played by Bill Thompson who was The Old Timer and Boomer, the W.C. Fields sound-alike con artist. Other future great neighbors would include Mayor LaTrivia and Dr. Gamble - but, IMHO, they didn't rank up there with Gildy and Uppy.

The best show of all I betcha'
I can't get enough of these. They may be a little cornball, but good Irish homespun humor. Fibber needs Molly to keep his feet on the ground. A parade of neighbors pass through and create an atmosphere of a close knit community from an almost forgotton era.
